Who We Are
Thank you for visiting K-PARC! We are a group of families just like yours working together to make things better for our children. We plan fun things to do together. We look for the best information and training out there to share with each other and the professionals that work with our children. And, we connect families to great services and the professionals that are doing great work.

- Kansas families who have adopted from public child welfare

Greg Lombard Rea, Post Adoption Services Coordinator in Topeka, is passionate about helping adoptive and kinship families learn the principles of TBRI so that they can be a source of healing in the lives of their “children from hard places.” He is a husband of 33 years and a dad to two adult kids and two teenagers by adoption.

Kimberlin Voth, Post Adoption Service Coordinator in Kansas City, is a Kansas State University Graduate with 4 years’ experience in child welfare. I love to play with my dog, Fetty, and go to movies alone. My favorite food would be a toss-up between Chick-Fil-A and Sushi. I have to have a cup of coffee every morning before I can even begin to function for my day. I hope to one day take a trip to Africa and work inside the orphanages. I don’t have any children at the moment but have a huge heart for kiddos and plan to adopt my own in the future.
